Apr-02-06  jamesmaskell: Kramnik may have had 175 ELO up on Roth, but even then, Kramnik really gave an aggressive game here. 14...Bxc6?? was a huge blunder not realising the rook was en prise. 14...cxd6 would have been an improvement I think.
Apr-02-06  suenteus po 147: <jamesmaskell> The simple fact is that there is no way to save the rook. I don't see how 14...cxd6 is any better than 14...Bxc6 since both bishops will get away instead of black simply being down the exchange and a pawn. Toth needed an improvement earlier than move 14.
Apr-02-06  Chess Classics: Perhaps 9...♕xe3 is the losing move for black?


Apr-02-06  suenteus po 147: <Chess Classics> That's a desperate exchange to hold a failing position. 6...Nxd4 looks like the stinker to me.
